Windstream deployed fixed wireless technology to deliver broadband speeds up to 100 Mbps to customers in western Poteau. About 900 locations in Poteau are covered by this first phase of the project and 8,800 locations in the Poteau area will qualify for fixed wireless broadband when the project will be completed later in 2018. Windstream is using fixed wireless technology to help meet its obligations under the FCC's Connect America Fund initiative, which is designed to support network upgrades in rural areas that would otherwise not be economically feasible.
